Final Thoughts:
The episode we have been waiting for, and it didn’t disappoint. The Crossover with The Flash was amazing and left us with the best episode of Supergirl. This episode was filled with so many amazing moments, like the moment that Barry realizes he is no longer on Earth-One, Listing the names of The Green Arrow, Black Canary, Firestorm and The Atom then there was the Cat Grants CW line. These were spot on moments and just perfect, an example of what happens when everything works.

This episode didn’t feel like a Supergirl episode, it felt like a Flash episode. It just so apparent that the creative team really loves The Flash character. There are always these little moments with in these comic book shows that gets my inner comic book nerd self excited. Once The Flash’s music hit, I had one of those moments, then there was the balcony scene where Barry was the mentor and you get the soft Flash music play. So Great!

The episode stars had to be Winn, Cat Grant and Grant Gustin. Even Melissa Benoist was amazing, not that she isn’t always. Winn’s excitement that there is a man that can time travel was so refreshing, and Benoist became even more charming than usual. But in the end it was Grant Gustin, he is the star of the DC Universe. DC Comics, take note Grant Gustin is The Flash and it would be in the best interest to get him in the movies as soon as possible.

This is what these shows should be fun and charming. This is a must see episode and If you didn’t catch it you need to find it. This is what happens when casting is spot on. Let us know what your thoughts of the episode were, leave your comments below.
